How does your team approach responding to calls for project co-financing? Do you always start by carefully reading and studying the instructions, guidelines and priorities of the call? Do you set realistic and measurable goals that you will achieve with the project? How much time do you need to prepare the financial structure of the project, and how do you arrange your partnerships?

Bojan Schuch, an international expert for strategic and financial development of organizations, will present a set of tips for effective project management.

Bojan Schuch, an international expert for strategic and financial development of organizations, will present a set of tips for effective project management: how to start the project application process, how to identify the most common mistakes in reading and understanding tender documents, and how to recognize good practices. As an experienced financial advisor, Mr Schuch will primarily provide guidelines for the process of project design, which you will be able to use even at later stages of project implementation.


The webinar is intended for individuals and organizations from the cultural and various creative sectors that are facing the challenges of project management in the phase of finding suitable tenders, and of submitting candidacies following increasingly selective international tender procedures. Participation in this hour-long webinar is therefore recommended for both beginners and more experienced professionals who wish to upgrade their skills in order to be able to navigate the increasingly complex universe of calls for proposals more easily and efficiently.
